We here at Ok! Here is the Situation do a lot of Bachelor-related web surfing, trying to find as many great nuggets of content out there as possible. And what we hope to do is provide you with a one-stop-shop for all of that great content. I mean, since we are going to put in the time searching and searching and searching anyhow, we might as well save you the time and serve it all up for you here! So – with that in mind, we searched for and found quite a few show recap blogs and snippets out there — some written by some of your favorite former castmates even! — and, well, here they are!
Host Chris Harrison’s thoughts on The Bachelor Season 16, episode 1: “Jenna locked herself in the bathroom and was crying so much we weren’t sure she was even going to make it to the rose ceremony. We had to hold everything up and wait for her. Ben was somewhat aware of the drama and although he was unsure of Jenna, in the end he decided he would chalk up her emotion to first-night jitters and give her another chance. I would love to tell you this story has a happy ending and Jenna redeems herself with a strong showing next week but… that’s just not what happens.”
Bachelor Pad 2 winner Michael Stagliano’s thoughts: “Girl I love (Yeah, I am a one woman man): Nikki: Looked beautiful, soft spoken, tender, charming, great smile/laugh. Got butterflies when I saw this one. And despite her occupation in dentistry (and we all know how I feel about dentists, hahaha) She was stunning. #love”
Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky’s thoughts: “Let’s start with Ben. I really like him. He seems like a normal, chill guy looking for love. Plus he owns a winery, which puts him ahead of the game in my book! I wish we saw a little more of his interactions with the girls during this episode, but I guess there was too much drama going on. I hope the next episode focuses on Ben’s connections with the girls a little more.”
Bachelor Brad reject and America’s sweetheart Ashley Spivey’s thoughts: “Never EVER tell a guy that your friends commonly call you the most calorie filled burger at Wendy’s. Seriously – the Baconator has 1330 calories and is one of the 41 most deadly fast food items you can order. I’m pretty sure Ben doesn’t want a taste!”
Bachelorette DeAnna’s “temporary chosen one” Jesse Csincsak’s thoughts: “I think Monica and Blakeley are there for the simple fact to stir up drama, Jesse shares with [hollywoodlife.com]. “They are being kept there by producers.”
“Wow, I don’t think I have seen a group of girls this drunk since college. By the time all 25 girls (and the grandma) were in the house, almost everyone was slurring their words! So when you see a girl like Jenna seeming to be so upset, just think if someone pumped a box full of wine into you and then had a few people gang up on you and producers pulling scams on you — then you might not handle the situation very well. (Let’s not forget about the magic of the editing room, either.)”
Snarky blogger Knox McCoy’s thoughts: “Harrison is coming STRONG with the hand gesturing. Power moves, power suit, you guys. Harrison isn’t messing around this year.”
